Bejeweled started life as a popular gem swapping game that comes from the genre of games that also includes Tetris and Kyodai. You must eliminate gems in order to make room for others and avoid having your grid filled with gems.
When it was first rumored that Bejeweled would be making the transition to the slot genre, it caused a stir. There were thoughts that it could either be a huge success or a massive failure. If you’ve played Bejeweled then you will appreciate that it does have a kind of cult following so there was a lot of pressure on IGT to get this right from the get go and, let’s face it, it isn’t the easiest game format to convert into slot format. So, immediately, IGT were facing an uphill battle from the start but at the same time there was the potential to offer a very unique slot game for the market and that potential really excited me entering this review.
If You Like Bejeweled, You’ll Love This
The Bejeweled slot is a 5 reel, 10 payline game that really does fulfil its potential and will be a slot that appeals to fans of the original Bejeweled game as well as those players that have enjoyed other IGT slots based on a previously successful franchise such as the television quiz show themed 100,000 Pyramid and the slot version of the iconic murder mystery board game Cluedo.
Win 20,000x Your Line Bet with the Super Jackpot
This slot stays very close to the original Bejeweled game. The reels are laid out as if they are the Bejeweled game grid. The Wild symbol is represented by the Bejeweled and this symbol substitutes for all other symbols to complete winning combinations. If you are fortunate enough to hit five Bejeweled Wild symbols on the tenth pay-line then you will win the Super Jackpot that is valued at 20,000x your initial line bet.
Five Wilds Could Earn You 10,000x Your Line Bet
There is also the chance to win another massive prize if you hit five Bejeweled Wild symbols on pay-lines 1-9. If you manage to pull off this feat then you will be rewarded with a prize worth 10,000x your initial line bet.
No Free Spins, Just Gems
In true Bejeweled fashion, there are essentially no spins in this game. When you press the spin button the jewels drop down onto the reels as opposed to spinning into place. Any gems that fall that form winning combinations are then removed and additional gems fall to replace them.
This slot is a great twist on a popular brain teasing game and there is no doubt that it will appeal to fans of the original Bejeweled game. It does feel like you are playing the original Bejeweled at times and the developer has done a great job in intertwining Bejeweled and the slot format together. Even if you do not like Bejeweled you cannot help but respect how it transfers into a slot and you might even find this slot becoming your guilty pleasure. The game play is simple, you can win big and it is something slightly different from the norm. It is pretty hard to find anything bad to say about this game so give it a go!
